Why I think people who think drugs are stupid, are stupid.

Posted 03-07-2011 at 01:11 PM by SmokeaJoint

I use to live in the bible belt, and I heard sooooo many times that "mind altering substances are bad/immoral/etc" and the act of consuming drugs was inherently wrong. Well, I feel this isn't so. It cannot be so, humans and other animals are programmed to seek experiences which alter the consciousness. Small children like to spin in a circle because being dizzy is sensory alteration. Animals in the wild seek out entheogenic plants for reasons other than food or survival. Hell, my cat eats catnip and trips his balls off almost daily. Bees sip nectar from Poppies and datura flowers and become so intoxicated they can't even fly. The examples can go on and on.

When people go sky diving, or bungee jumping, or any other number of extreme sports, they're releasing chemicals into their brain that are also released when someone does, say, a line of cocaine. Sex and eating release dopamine. Sneezing even has a feel good chemical or two with it. Hell, the body produces DMT, kind of like that "final high". So how is doing drugs wrong?

This IS NOT justification for my lifestyle of drug abuse, but I do think it advocates responsible, moderate usage from time to time. Why does the governments and those in power seem so set AGAINST things that make people feel good? Sex is demonized, drugs are prohibited, as was alcohol. Freedom is increasingly downtrodden. For what? Thats one question I have no answer to.

Thanks for reading another rant of mine, hope someone gets something out of these.
